I worked for a while in the produce department, and as we tried to keep our products fresh, there was no recourse but to consign some overripe fruits and vegetables to the garbage bin.

With all that is being written about the garbage-to-ethanol plant and the Lake County Solid Waste Management District, there is a need to review where it began and where we are now.
